Ecstatic Vision

2017 marks the year of the second album of ECSTATIC VISION and they will come back to Europe to present their new music.

Who seen them last year on tour could testify we are in front of one of the most interesting and promising psych hard rock band around!

The Philadelphia trio Ecstatic Vision have toured with metal acts like YOB and Enslaved, and they’re signed to the metal-associated label Relapse Records, and they look like a metal band. But Ecstatic Vision’s forthcoming five-song debut, Sonic Praise, only occasionally intersects with metal, and when it does, it resembles bands like Hawkwind or Monster Magnet or Earthless.

These are tripped-out, sun-baked, cloud-high psychedelic jams drawing from free jazz, Krautrock, and Afrobeat, resulting in music that lives up to the lofty promises made in both the band’s name and their album’s title. To the extent this stuff might be conflated, confused, or associated with metal, it comprises one of the best metal albums of 2015.

More aptly, though, it recalls the old Spacemen 3 album title (and mission statement), Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To.
